At 250mm long and a front optic of 58mm and weighing in at 398g this is is a huge lens by any standard. The 23mm viewfinder 5mm square at it's centre. The lens attaches to the camera by two grips that tighten by a collar with a red mark that lines up with a '0' mark on the barrel.
The focusing collar can be locked by a small knob on one side of the lens. The short focal range is 25 feet, extending to infinity. The other side of the lens barrel has a tripod socket. This is not at the centre of gravity so a very stable and heavy tripod is needed.
